Super moon graces night sky across the globe

North America's oldest published periodical, Old Farmer's Almanac, states that April's full Moon generally occurs during the springtime blossoming of a wildflower in eastern North America, known by the name of Phlox subulata or creeping phlox or moss phlox, and even moss pink. Despite its appearance in some photos, the moon doesn't actually turn pink - it's just a haze in some areas. During these events, the Moon can appear significantly larger in the night sky, and up to 15% brighter than a standard full moon.
